Dear Church Family,
As I shared recently in our morning service the power of words and giving them to people who need them, here’s a prayer of blessing that could encourage someone throughout 2014. This prayer is not magical but reveals some biblical truth that will challenge us to search the word of God to find these verses.
“In the name of Jesus Christ, I bless you with the promises of God which are “yes” and “amen.” May the Holy Spirit, make you healthy and strong in spirit, mind, and body to move in faith and expectancy. May God’s angels be with you to protect and keep you. Be blessed with supernatural strength to turn our eyes from foolish, worthless, and evil things, and to shut out the demeaning and the negative. Instead may you behold the beauty of things that God has planned for you as you obey His word.
May God bless your ears to hear the lovely, the uplifting and the encouraging. May your mind be strong disciplined, balanced and faith filled. May your feet walk in holiness and your steps be ordered by the Lord. May your hands be tender and helping, blessing those in need, May your heart be humble and receptive to one another and to the things of God, not to the world.
God’s grace be upon your home, that it may be a sanctuary of rest and renewal, a haven of peace where sound of joy and laughter grace its walls, where love and unconditional acceptance of one another is the constant rule.
May God give you the spiritual strength to overcome the evil one and avoid temptation. May God’s grace be upon you to fulfill your dreams and visions. May goodness and mercy follow you all the days of your long life.” (What I learned from a simple blessing by Michael W. Smith)
